Newbald Primary School

"Big enough to inspire, Small enough to care"



Since the introduction of the New National Curriculum for Key Stages 1 and 2 in September 2013, our teachers have looked at ways of weaving these new requirements into their teaching and planning, to create a cohesive curriculum to suit the needs of our setting and children. An overview of Newbald's unique curriculum can be viewed in the link below.

We aim to ensure our children continue to learn, achieve, enjoy and fulfil their potential!

Reading at Newbald


Phonics is taught from Reception onwards, we teach phonics through a systematic synthetic phonics approach called Letters and Sounds. We use resources from Floppy's Phonics and The Oxford Reading Tree books form part of our early reading scheme. The books are graded at levels that directly link to the phonics stages. Children take books home to read and to share with parents.

We encourage the love of reading throughout the curriculum and hope to inspire our pupils to read extensively both inside and outside school.
